Almonds & Almond Butter

Almond Butter is mildly sweet and one of the most popular alternatives to peanut butter. It is easily spreadable, on bread or crackers, and can be thinned with liquid to make sauces or dips.

Thought to have originated in Asia and North America, almonds have been cultivated since ancient times in Assyria, Persia, and Greece. Ancient Romans referred to almonds as the "Greek nut." Almonds continue to be grown in warm climates, including the Mediterranean regions, South America, and California.

USES
Almond butter is so versatile and is gaining popularity for many reasons. It has a mellow taste with a delightful "finish". It can be used like peanut butter and also as a base for soups, sauces, and dips. Because ours is an unprocessed food (nothing added or changed), the oil and solids of the almond butter occasionally may separate in the jar but can easily be stirred together before use. It is chock full of nutrients and is finally getting the attention it deserves.

NUTRITION
Our nut butter varieties are high in protein, nutrients and unsaturated fats, low in saturated fats, and, of course, no cholesterol or trans fatty acids. In addition, they are important allies in decreasing the risk of heart disease.

Almond is particularly known for calcium, magnesium, potassium, protein, vitamin E and arginine (may play an important role in preventing heart disease). Please see our nutrition page for additional information.
